Free 8 week mindfulness for health and wellbeing courses

Our next set of free courses in Leeds are aimed at people over 60 (with an online option) or people from ethnic minority backgrounds.  

The Breathworks Mindfulness for Health 8 week course teaches the skills to help you support your physical and mental health.  Each week introduces key ideas and practices which help us to live well and thrive in the face of health challenges such as chronic pain, fatigue, chronic illness and stress.

What will I learn?

      • mindfulness and self compassion skills in daily life
      • how mindfulness can help manage pain, stress and chronic health conditions
      • to live in the present moment and breathe into your experience, rather than tensing against it
      • the art of taking joy in simple everyday pleasures
      • greater concentration and focus
      • transformative body and breath awareness for relaxation, tranquility and to let go of tension

What is involved?

  • 8 weeks of 2.5 hour sessions with breaks
  • a mixture of practicing mindfulness, learning ideas and discussion
  • being in a warm and friendly group where you can choose what to share
  • led by an experienced accredited mindfulness teacher
  • resources to practice at home
  • free membership of an online community of practice to continue after the course
